Gravekeeper's Servant

Wow...talk about old school. Bad old school.

GK Servant's effect is simple -- everytime your opponent attacks, discard a card off the top of your deck. What younger players don't seem to realize about this is that it will help the opponent more than hinder them, if the opponent is any good.

I understand that in most duels involving two younger/inexperienced players, the game becomes long and drawn-out, to the point where those discarded cards could make someone deck out and lose. However, there are too many reasons to want cards in your Graveyard -- to remove for Chaos Sorcerer, to revive with Premature Burial or Call of the Haunted...a Treeborn Frog they'll get to Special Summon next turn...the odds on you discarding something like your opponent's Graceful Charity are very small, and the odds on you putting something in their graveyard that will help them are probably 1 in 4 or better.

Again, going back to card advantage, this is another -1; your opponent may be discarding cards, but not from their hand or field, and those are typically the only ones that really count.

1/5 all

Today we look at a very interesting Magic card, Gravekeeper's Servant.
This card forces your opponent to discard the top card from their deck in order to attack.

There really isn't much to say about this card. It isn't that great on it's own, although it would be incredibly annoying. The only real place for this would be an Extreme Deck destruction deck with Morphing Jar, Morphing Jar #2, Needle Worm, etc...

Ratings:

2.5/5 all around
4/5 Extreme Deck Destruction
Ryoga Gravekeeper's Servant:

I once rather liked this card.

An interesting miller, deffinetly, but not really practical. Except in a dedicated deck, milling is generally useless. The argument that you've discarded that Snatch is fairly irrelvant as it's all random and you're just as likely to discard the third tribute monster he didn't want to draw.

This card also falls down to s/t removal as it doesn't do anything until your opponent attacks (which a dedicated miller might want to avoid). A nice idea, but not immensely useful.

Traditional: 2/5

Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,

Ryoga
